Tomorrow’s match against Bari has the same value of the Derby: three points, nothing more.” Here’s the first thought of José Mourinho at a press conference on the eve of the delicate match with the team tomorrow in Ventura. Biancorosso who earn the praise of the Portuguese coach: “The Bari is a team of great quality, fast, there we saw the first leg. The Bari are playing very well and deserves the ranking it has. We should be very careful, you a formidable team. ” MOU for tomorrow’s match found Cambiasso, Muntari and Santon, all available after injuries accused; Mourinho, however, reserves special words for another player: “My congratulations go to Materazzi, who barely a week after surgery works to return as soon as possible to the fullest. Congratulations to Cambiasso, Muntari and now the first workout. Santon improves but is not one hundred per cent, but still out Stankovic, Krhin and Thiago Motta. But we Balotelli, Quaresma and Milito Pandev they are well, I wanted to play with three players in front. Something is missing, but there we are. ” And speaking of Santon, for the ‘baby’ comes important advice: “If we now think of the World, now that it is still the holder for Inter, is wrong. He must think only to train well, make no mistake, first of all from the point of defensively, and only then can think of the rest, in the attack. He must find the balance, mental and physical, with the knowledge that I like and society, which is why we are desperately looking for a left back. We trust Santon. If you play well here, then comes the World Cup. ”
A comment on the situation of the Inter pursuers: “What I believe is that there are samples in January, because there is so much to finish the championship, so there are many teams in the running, having the chance to win the Scudetto. Even those teams who say they are not. I as a coach and as an optimistic person I still think we are strong enough to finish first in May, but that’s just the thought of coach of Inter. We have 45 points: excellent. A ‘very good’ that I expected, so I’m happy but not surprised. ” Balotelli on the new case, however, the Portuguese makes little: “I do not really like talking about Mario, because I have so often spoken well and took a step back, and back I happened to talk about it less well and immediately made a rather step forward. But today I can say that the yellow card which took in Verona was perfect. is perfect and when Mario is working for the team. Just like Pandev, that this mentality has it innate. ” Punchline speedy market: “I am not speaking of names and ask for nothing. And even cry. Never cry: If between now and end of the month comes a midfield player who can give us some more ‘balanced, great. If arrives, just the same. Even in difficult cases we have shown to have character. “
Growing waiting pre derby, a little over a week ago, Mourinho has a population of injured and stranded in view of the Milan derby, while Leonardo can not help but redarre tables comeback. And ‘well-known that for nearly a month, the Inter midfield lives an emergency situation, a situation that has lasted four games and despite that the Nerazzurri have lost 2 points in Bergamo against Lazio, Chievo and Siena perfect score, despite that led to defections important to a game not quite optimal.
So Bari becomes crucial crossroads before the race on January 24, taking into account the fact that the Rossoneri have to pick the game against Fiorentina and then have a potential minus 5 in the rankings. If the trip through unscathed, Puglia, Inter will prepare a more peaceful and even the super challenge to settle for the draw, forcing Milan to try to make full points in Florence. Bari, therefore, has become the central hub of the season for Inter and the fate of the League, a tough trip, the last without Cambiasso and Stankovic, a test which, if exceeded, even without the highest marks, will send a strong signal to the hopes Inter scudetto is that of red and black.
San Siro that he has already lived, he preferred to live, even just for 90 ‘, to his younger comrades. We’re talking about Nicola Ventola, a former striker today at Novara, which at today’s game against AC Milan’s San Siro, in the end lost 2-1, he told his coach to let him play Tesser younger companions, who never before have experienced the thrill of playing at the ‘Scala del Calcio’, instead of making him play despite being among the stars of training Piedmont. “Mister, if I believe they play a few mate, step on the way to San Siro is an emotion that I’ve tried and I want to be left to others”: these were the words of a great man, as well as the better player.
Saturday at the San Nicola di Bari reach the Inter goalkeeper and Galletti, Jean-Francois Gillet, spoke about the match that will “try to make a game and we know that each of us is asked to give a little more. I remember the great personality that we showed at the San Siro and a pair of scoring in the final. We left happy to have played well and started on the right foot the championship. ”
The Bari is present in this delicate challenge a week later to say the least unfortunate for the team of Mr. Ventura: “It was not easy for a week with the injury to Bari Frog, the disqualification of Almiron, the defeat of Florence. Go say a word more to our friend the frog. And ‘a pillar of our defense and will be thinking of absence. With Bonucci and me we like to call the triangle of the’ Bermuda ‘. Our thoughts are with him. On the disqualification of Almiron these things happen in football. It was certainly a moment of great form for him and then for the whole team. Against Inter we can not rest easy. We must stay focused, do what until now we did against all teams. Only in this way can aspire to something good. ”
Then a joke about Mario Balotelli and its well-known problem with many supporters of our football. Gillet is sure that the public Bari will, as often happens, the positive and status: “Our supporters will behave as they did semrpe with great accuracy. We are a nation of racists. In fact I think that Italy is generally not is. We are in 2010 and these things must be in there more, yellow, black, white, red … but joking, we are all equal. There will be a great frame of the public but we knew this, considering how many are away . We hope to give him another magical evening. “
Continues to be complex and intricate the story about the future of Amantino Mancini. For the Brazilian apparently made to Marseille, but everything is currently on standby because of the interest of big clubs for the former Roma player. To confirm the situation is the president of Marseille, Jean Claude Dassier, who said today: “The debates are over, but we can say has ended up either in one direction or another. There are big clubs player, but the OM is still in pole position. But there are still 48 hours. We are confident, “he continued Dassier” but we’re not the only ones on Mancini. Now is the player who must decide. He wants to come and mosa get in and I hope it was the easiest thing, but that’s OK. ”
Soon the situation will be clarified, but it seems that the OM is still leading Amantino.
